Granny and I have been a little lazy the last few days.  Fishing from the beach has been flat out lousy.  I’ve done 20-30 minutes of casting from Cerritos Beach each of the last three days without even seeing a fish.  So in order to save my shoulder, Granny and I have been resting, swimming, lightly hitting the gym, running the beach and eating too much.  It’s been wonderful!

 

Currier-WillmottWe had a couple highlights.  My past best friend and in fact, best man at our wedding back in 1991 or 92, Gary (The Wedge) Willmott is in Baja and we hung out all yesterday.  Gary and I fished together all the time back in the 80’s and 90’s in and around Jackson Hole.  We were nightmares for the fish of the Yellowstone region for a long time.

 

In the late 90’s Gary got a job as a mate on a marlin boat in the Bahamas and that’s all she wrote.  He’s worked a lot of cool places since and the last ten years he’s been in Costa Rica as Capt. of a 66’ yacht.  Gary is here because the owner of the yacht likes to fish marlin hotspots.  As you know the marlin are here so they drove up from Costa Rica back in September and start the long return journey Friday.

 

fish-coffee-mugFriend and owner of The Fly Fishing Show, Ben Furimsky, is also here.  We met up today and did lunch and dinner.  We also hit the beach for an hour over sunset chucking Clouser’s in the surf.  Nothing however.

Despite being 2022, internet is sparse in remote parts of Baja.  Furthermore, after a 10-12hr fishing day on the salt, it’s hard to get the blogs out on time.  They will be delayed but they will come in full.  Stay tuned! 

In the meantime, please visit my webstore for “Christmas Gifts for the Angler that has Everything” and stuff those stockings with my fish decals from “Pescador on the Fly”.

I started fly fishing at age 7 in the lakes and ponds of New England cutting my teeth on various sunfish, bass, crappie and stocked trout. I went to Northland College in Ashland, Wisconsin, where I graduated with a Naturalist Degree while I discovered new fishing opportunities for pike, muskellunge, walleyes and various salmonids found in Lake Superior and its tributaries.

From there I headed west to work a few years in the Yellowstone region to simply work as much as most people fish and fish as much as most people work. I did just that, only it lasted over 20 years working at the Jack Dennis Fly Shop in Jackson, WY where I departed in 2009. Now it’s time to work for "The Man", working for myself that is.

I pursue my love to paint fish, lecture on every aspect of fly fishing you can imagine and host a few trips to some of the most exotic places you can think of. My ultimate goal is to catch as many species of fish on fly possible from freshwater to saltwater, throughout the world. I presently have taken over 440 species from over 60 countries!
